I recently received an email indicating that Rogers Cable television would be unable to televise City of Guelph council meetings in the month of July due to staffing shortages. Unfortunately there are several very significant issues coming before council in July.
While I can’t guarantee anything can be done to ensure that Guelph residents won’t be left in the dark, I made a call to Jeremy Clark, Regional Station Manager at Rogers Television and Dave Carswell at CTV to ensure that they were aware of the issues we are debating in July.
Please consider covering these important public issues.
Monday July 7th
An issue that divided the community, cost millions of dollars in legal fees and took over a decade to resolve in the courts returns once again as Wal-Mart Canada proposes to expand one of its most controversial developments.
Monday July 14th
Information presentation to Council regarding the proposed merger of Guelph Hydro and Horizon Utilities. A business merger that will have provincial ramifications involving one of Canada’s the oldest public utilities .

Hopefully they will be able to do what is necessary to cover the meetings.
